This live lesson saw Craig and Daniel from Cyber Skills Live guide participants through using data about themselves to create an abstract self portrait using code. (This is activity 5 on the website). All of the coding is done in a web browser with no other software required. Larger screen devices are preferable as learners are required to edit code.
